    If you want the truthI wish those in authority would read this and do something about the current guidelines Maybe then we can deal with the obesity levels.

    Very interesting, especially the revelation that American studies were used as evidence for the UK government to change its advice about cutting fat to lose weight in the late 70s early 80s Also the information on sugar is helpful Now of course Zoe s ideas are quite mainstream I had a go at the diet but found it very hard to stick to I found the 5 2 worked better for me, and reduced my BMI from 25.4 to 21.3 However the book did encourage me to change my eating habits less sugar, smaller po Very interesting, especially the revelation that American studies were used as evidence for the UK government to change its advice about cutting fat to lose weight in the late 70s early 80s Also the information on sugar is helpful Now of course Zoe s ideas are quite mainstream I had a go at the diet but found it very hard to stick to I found the 5 2 worked better for me, and reduced my BMI from 25.4 to 21.3 However the book did encourage me to change my eating habits less sugar, smaller portions and this is something I have largely continued with An informative and challenging read well written and enjoyable

    This book and other research is changing how we think about food and food science Time will tell if it is on the right track, but Harcombe s explanations of the Science behind her message make sense to me and I have cut down on carbs and sugar with resulting benefits of keeping weight off and still eating well Not an easy path to follow if you are veggie, and if you are looking for a prescriptive measure and eat approach this is not it This is not a diet book per se,a treatise on ho This book and other research is changing how we think about food and food science Time will tell if it is on the right track, but Harcombe s explanations of the Science behind her message make sense to me and I have cut down on carbs and sugar with resulting benefits of keeping weight off and still eating well Not an easy path to follow if you are veggie, and if you are looking for a prescriptive measure and eat approach this is not it This is not a diet book per se,a treatise on how to change one s eating habits for good, which seems to me a much better approach than the on off of a conventional diet

    Fantastic book, and a must read for anyone interested in health and nutrition To me it finally puts to rest a lot of the obesity myths that are out there, and shines a very revealing light on the role large corporations play in our national health and nutrition strategies If i could sum this book into three words it would be eat real food , but i recommend reading this book to really hammer home the reason why everyone needs to do this, now.

    I like books written by researchers rather than the scientists themselves Researchers know how to research their material funny that , and can usually write in an easy journalistic style This book is like that most of the time, although there is some repetition.I would recommend it to anyone interested in what s going on in our world as far as weight and health is concerned.
